OK - ultimately, yes, we may refer to the internet for the final product or news story.

Even when the author is out-and-about trying to relax for a few hours, or for the day - topics, story-lines - or tools that might be of use to share with you our valued visitor are spotted.

Based in Portsmouth, England, the author was waiting for the Hovercraft to go to the nearby Isle Of Wight.

While waiting, eagerly for the Hovercraft, trying to ease the excitement by reading the "typical" advertising posters in the waiting area - one poster caught my eye and became the focus of this article.

The poster was headed: HoverTravel Apps For your iPhone.

Using HoverTravel Apps you can:

  • View Timetables For Services Between Portsmouth (Southsea) and Ryde - Isle Of Wight;
  • Find Fares Information;
  • Check Service Status.

You can download this application which is compatible with:
